In this post, we will talk about a F flute corrugated box printed inside and outside. It is used to pack the home testing kits.
Package Design Requirement
The client absolutely loves our packaging. He wanted to reach out to see if we could help with the packaging. The paper printed box is for a soon to launch product (Home testing kits) for their company, Doctoori Connect. His company sells medical testing kits that users can order to their homes. Moreover, they already have the paper box design in place and would like the packaging to be eco-friendly and sustainable.
Here are the components of the kit they will need our help with:
First, an outer cardboard gift box with custom doctoori branding and design
Second, a small cardboard insert inside the box with instructions on how to take the test and return the test back (DESIGN TO BE PROVIDED SOON)
Third, two cardboard/paper boxes or flaps inside the box – one for taking the test and the other one for sending the sample back to us.
Corrugated Mailing Box
We use the custom packaging as a corrugated mailer box for the mailing and postage purpose. The paper printed box needs to be rigid and durable. Therefore, we choose the paper materials carefully to keep the carton strong.
Because the box has a small size, we decide to use the F flute corrugated board. It is a micro flute corrugated board, and is quite thin. It is only 1-1.2mm in thickness.
Printing inside and Outside
In light of the color, we apply the litho printing method to the package inside and outside. It has a full color printing. On the outside, the colors are light blue and orange. And it has the matte laminating outside. While on the inside, the colors are light blue and orange too. Generally, the printing design is quite simple, which make the box looks clean and impressive.
Retail Packaging and Electronics Packaging
On the one hand, the product inside the custom paper box are some home testing kits. It is a typical electronics packaging paper box. The package needs to keep the items safe inside. Therefore, we create a cardboard insert cleverly to hold the items inside well.
On the other hand, the package is for retail purpose. It requires us to meet the general need of a retail packaging box. For this reason, the marketing purpose is very important, which explains why we use the printing inside and outside.
